    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    Not much acting and then a lot of acting!!!!

  • The Spy Who Dumped Me

    The Spy Who Dumped Me


    For every woman that has ever been called "a little much".

  • In My Room

    In My Room


    The harsh reality of living as a freelance videographer.

  • Strong Island

    Strong Island


    Beautiful cinematography, especially in extreme close up shots of Yance the filmmaker himself. The story, although one we have sadly heard too many times, is told slowly and carefully through interviews of the victims family. I found the confessional style of Yance’s interactions with the camera to be the most devastating and revelatory moments in the film, although his mothers presence is undeniably strong as well. A film about healing that has no real end.

  • Set It Up

    Set It Up


    eerily formulaic but kind of nice

    Hypochondriacs represent.

  • The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)


    The car smashing scene w/ Jean's reaction is definitely the best this film has to offer.

  • Sonatine



    I shouldn't really rate this because I slept through 80% of it but I enjoyed my re-edited dream version.

  • Vicky Cristina Barcelona

    Vicky Cristina Barcelona


    Previously turned this film off part way in, but its not as bad as I thought, I guess.

  • Dunkirk



    Felt like a big budget documentary dramatization on the concept that war is in fact still a really bad time.
